Stratégie d'établissement

The theme of physical organic chemistry is part of the CNRS' 2019-2023 contract of objectives and performance, responding in particular to the questions of multi-scale characterization of matter and more sober chemistry with the integration of disruptive technologies such as flow chemistry, photochemistry, machine learning and artificial intelligence. This issue will continue for the period 2023-2027.

Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil

The four targeted laboratories (in alphabetical order: CEISAM, COBRA, DCM, LHFA) are visible through their research work in the field of physical organic chemistry, including innovative methodological developments (flow chemistry, electrochemistry, photochemistry, mass spectrometry, NMR, EPR, machine learning, AI, etc.). For each of them, the number of staff in this field is limited and must be strengthened in order to expand and allow France to be visible internationally in this research field.

Stratégie Internationale

The scientific community active in the understanding of reaction processes is currently under-critical to respond rapidly to the major societal challenges that represent the economy of resources, particularly energy, and the environmental impacts of the synthesis of molecules with diverse applications (biology/health, optics, electronics, etc.). While the understanding of the activation of molecules and reaction processes is essential for the development of new reactions and processes that meet these requirements and can be transferred to industry, the community capable of understanding these issues has indeed been losing many researchers for several years. To regain strength and increase competencies in this field requires not only appropriate training in universities, but also the recruitment of talented scientists already trained and experienced in this field.
Recruiting a talented young researcher trained abroad in countries that have been able to maintain or develop this type of fundamental research, such as Germany or the United States, appears to be facilitated by the junior professorship system, which is attractive and will allow the laureate to be provided with an appropriate environment to begin his or her project in France.

Résumé du projet scientifique

In an era where the synthesis of molecules with diverse properties must be integrated with the economy of raw materials, low energy costs and the absence of impact on health and the environment, the understanding of reaction mechanisms at the molecular level is essential in order to develop reactions and processes that can be adapted at the industrial level and that can be part of a sustainable economy. In this context, the project will focus on the relationship between structure and reactivity of molecules, applying the tools of physical chemistry to the study of organic molecules. The project may include the kinetic study of organic reactions, the analysis of the chemical stability of reaction intermediates, transition states and reaction products, as well as solvation states and molecular interactions influencing chemical reactivity. The project will rely on classical or statistical thermodynamic calculations, quantum chemistry, computational chemistry, machine learning or artificial intelligence, and relevant experimental approaches such as, but not limited to, photochemistry, electrochemistry, nuclear magnetic resonance, electron paramagnetic resonance or mass spectrometry.

Résumé du projet d'enseignement

The research theme of this CNRS Chair may be adapted to the various universities targeted in the region, depending on the place of recruitment. The nature of the courses that will be taught by the laureate in one of these institutions will be in accordance with the needs of the institution in bachelor's and master's degrees, and will take advantage of the profile of the laureate and his or her research in organic physical chemistry (electrochemistry, continuous flow synthesis, NMR, mass spectrometry, EPR, etc.).

Environnement Financier

  • Total financé (dont package ANR) : 200 k€
  • Total du projet : 200 k€

Diffusion scientifique

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.

Science ouverte

The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible, in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.

Science et société

The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors of the socio-economic and cultural eco system of the project.


The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
